AFL Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia Australian Football League (AFL NS)

Nova Scotia (NS)

The Nova Scotia Australian Football League (AFL NS) was formed in 2013 when two Aussie ex-pats, Jonah Scott and Joel Porter established a partner club relationship with a professional Australian rules football club from Western Australia known as the Fremantle Dockers.

Currently the NSAFL has two clubs, the Halifax Dockers AFC and the Sydney Giants AFC who play each other twice a year and also participate in annual tournaments held in Newfoundland and Quebec.

The Halifax Dockers also participate in a yearly two game series of International Rules Football against the local Halifax Gaelic Football Club, the Gaels. 

AFLNS also has the beginnings of a junior development program/league after having successfully hosted the first ever game of Australian Rules Football between two Canadian high school teams in June 2014 and is hoping to build on the momentum that this event created by continuing to promote the sport in high schools around the province.
